The Real Housewives franchise is associated with all sorts of drama. Catfights, infidelity, tax evasion, you name it, these women have found a way to get tangled up in it. But somehow through all this money laundering and family feuding, they find time to become booze entrepreneurs (ha). We all know Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel has found success but here are some other housewives that are dipping into the alcohol world.
Vicki’s Vodka – Orange County housewife Vicki Gunvalson, famous for slugging back vodka martinis on the show, started her own line of the spirit last year. Things were going great until her business partner sued her last week. He’s claiming Vicki gave her boyfriend part of her ownership without telling her partner. Tsk tsk Vicki, you should know better. Despite the legal woes, we hear the vodka’s not that bad.
“Fabellini” Sparkling Wine – Whether you love her or hate her, Teresa Giudice knows how to get attention. Maybe that’s why she released a line of sparkling wine. Or it could have been to support her criminal slob of a husband. Her Fabellini line is a sparkling wine with a blend of natural peach or raspberry flavors. The name alone has us laughing.
Zing Vodka – We’re surprised it took Beverly Hill’s housewife Adrienne Maloof this long to release her own vodka, seeing as her family owns half of Las Vegas. Zing Vodka debuted in 2012 with the release of their Red Velvet flavor. At no surprise to us, the bottles of vodka are lit up with LED lights to “enhance your experience.” Maybe the showy bottle is making up for some really gross vodka in the bottle.
Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio – Ramona is famous for two things: her crazy eyes and her addiction to Pinot Grigio. So naturally she had to start her own line. According to Ramona, it’s a smooth white wine, with a hint of fresh fruit and citrus. We hate to admit it but the wine is actually doing pretty well. Watch your back, Bethenny.
